Viewing a Summary of All the Interfaces on a Router

Posted September 28, 2004 by Headhunter in Cisco router

If you want to view the status of all your interfaces on a router, you can use the show ip interfaces brief command.

Using the show ip interfaces brief command will display the following:
Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol
Ethernet0 YES manual up up
Serial1/0 unassigned YES unset administratively down down
Serial2/0 YES manual up up
Serial2/1 YES manual up up

As you can see, you have a summary of each interface and a handy first step for troubleshooting.
